Yesterday, the action figure of the wandering Jedi and star of the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series went up for preorder across the web. While the product description does state this figure will be out a good year following the release of the live-action series, our sources have produced information to the contrary. We have received multiple reports stating this figure will be out this Fall. Also in the clip above, Ewan McGregor is presented with a packaged sample which includes the soon-to-be-removed plastic packaging window but Hasbro has stated they will remove all plastic by the end of 2022. So while Star Wars Hasbro figures continue to lag behind their media releases (unlike their Marvel counterparts), fans and collectors will be receiving this product much sooner than Spring 2023.
Hasbro has provided us with the official press release and images below:
STAR WARS:THE BLACK SERIES OBI-WAN KENOBI (WANDERING JEDI) FIGURE
(HASBRO/Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $24.99 /Available: Spring 2023)
STAR WARS fans and collectors can imagine scenes from the STAR WARS galaxy with this premium THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH OBI-WAN KENOBI (WANDERING JEDI) figure, inspired by the character in the STAR WARS: OBI-WAN KENOBI series. Obi-Wan Kenobi is set years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where Kenobi faced the corruption of his friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned Sith Lord Darth Vader. It also features the great articulation we have come to expect from Black Series, including the butterfly joints which allow more dynamic posing and articulation.
Fans and collectors can display this fully articulated figure, featuring premium deco and poseable head, arms, and legs, in their collection. This STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES figure also comes with 3 entertainment-inspired accessories. Available for pre-order 5/11 at 1:00 PM ET at most major retailers, including Hasbro Pulse.
